The next time someone says "I don't want you or you are not wanted here" read your word if your word is not readily available put the below scripture in your memory bank! The creator of the universe (of everything big and small) thought enough about you to choose you before He created the world. Before he created that hater, before He created water and sun, before He created animals He thought about (insert your name) Erikah. Oh My God, not only did You create me before the world and my haters but you said I want you in my family. Another incredible thing is He knew and knows that I was/will going to and continue to sin, mess up, procrastinate, cuss, have unrighteous anger, be lazy, mean, a jerk for no apparent reason, complain, with a loaf of bread under my arms and not think about Him for days, weeks, months and even years. He knew all this and still said I called you, am calling you, (insert your name) Erikah, I want you. Erikah (insert your name), you have a purpose, Erikah (insert your name) I have called you and adopted you. My son will pay for all your past, present, and future sins. Erikah (insert your name) I am waiting patiently for you. No one else can say it like you, teach it like you, show compassion like you, hug like you, or even encourage like you. Erikah (insert your name), I am the Lord Your God and I have called and am calling you on purpose and for purpose. Who is he or she compared to me? Erikah (insert your name), I am waiting.
He is still saying this to you, even when the hater is you, your mind, your thoughts, your words...
My responses to these verses are yes Lord, I'm here, ready, willing, you called me? and then undeniable and unashamedly praise to my God who called and continues to call me!
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.
Ephesians 1:4-7 NLT
